Winners for Life
Our Winners For Life initiative is dedicated to providing mammograms for the under served population in Southeast Texas. We stand on the belief that early detection saves lives. However, with the rising cost of diagnostic medical exams, it has become extremely difficult for those without insurance to obtain these life-saving screenings. We host various educational and fundraising events throughout the year to promote awareness, early detection and to raise money to pay for screening mammograms. Help us save a life today!
Our Sugar Busters initiative is dedicated to education, screening and support of patients and families dealing with Diabetes. Current statistics reveal there are 30.3 million people with diabetes, including 7.2 million people who are undiagnosed! Additionally, another 84.1 million adults have prediabetes. We are dedicated to providing free screening events, initial supplies and educational seminars to our local community. We will host an amazing Sugar Buster’s Brunch and Screening Event in August of 2019 where members of the local medical community and supportive services will be present to identify undiagnosed attendees as well as offer education pertaining to compliance, diet, medication, and lifestyle.
Our Purple Pacers initiative is dedicated to the support of pancreatic cancer patients and their families through education, supportive services and support of biomarker research. Pancreatic cancer is currently the third leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States and is expected to become the second by 2020! As one of the nation’s deadliest cancers, with a five year survival rate of only 9 percent, we are dedicated to bring this form of cancer to a halt! We are dedicated to serving as a liaison between local patients and caregivers, support groups and medical professionals. Our walk team participates in national awareness events annually. Locally, we are pleased to announce our first Purple Picnic in the Park to be held in June of 2019 to benefit our Purple Pacers initiative.
